Lots of you have been asking what you can do to help. This year's resolution is to affect change on The Angeles and take back OUR forest. I will have an online petition circulating soon. Thanks everybody.

I originally wanted to blog about my adventures in the San Gabriel Mountains. I have some good stories, like the time I took a donkey to Ralph's Supermarket. But then the Station Fire started. I realized that there is much that needs to be brought to the attention of the mountain going public. Most folks are kept in the dark about how the Angeles National Forest operates. I will raise issues that are important to me, which are hopefully important to all citizens, but if you have any suggestions for discussion here, I am willing.

Here's the big agenda: Forest Supervisor Jody Noiron. I've made a few smart remarks and cryptic comments about her. But now, with the backing of some knowledgeable and trusted friends, it is time for a concerted effort to have her removed from her post. Stay tuned for details. And if you have any information you would like to contribute, anonymously or not, email me at gregsweet4@yahoo.com

I will get to some of the stories, sooner or later. Also, I want to make it clear that I no longer work at Adams' Pack Station, that these words are my own, and that the pack station is not the source of my information - they don't want trouble.

Call Me Ishmael | In The Beginning | It WasThe Best Of Times, It Was The Worst Of Times

I don't know where to start with this blog. The beginning is typically the best place, but I can't find it. I don't know that one could call this writer's block, because my problem is not what to write, it's what to write first.

The reason I started this is that during the Station Fire in the San Gabriel Mountains, August - September 2009, I started contributing to a couple of local blogs. I knew that I had a lot to contribute, but I didn't know that anyone else was interested. In real life I have often bored people with minutia of San Gabriel Mountain history, and annoyed them with my opinions (affectionately known to me as 'my observations'). But maybe I can be informative and entertaining here in the blogosphere, or at least make us all think.

I'm pleased as punch to see your opening up a blog. There are many people who share your interests. In fact, you and I may have even met if you were the lone fellow taking care of the pack animals before the road up to the camp was repaired.
